My hometown has stayed about the same, but a town that my hometown used to play sports against has grown a little.

1,250 at the 2000 census; it had grown to 7,401 in the 2005 census estimate and had reached 14,698 by the 2010 census

There are too many people in this world. Wars used to be bloody and take care of the problem when disease wouldn't. Starvation was always good for a few million every year, but then we got these damned genetically modified crops. The Black Plague seemed alright, but of course we learn about disease vectors and squash it. And of course, people living in to their 90's is common now, which certainly doesn't help.

All I know is that when mother nature finally gets tired of this BS, she is going to go 7 kinds of apeshit.

Damn town's getting too big.

When I was a wee lad, say some 40 years ago, our county had something like 30K in it.
Now we are approching the population of Montana.
Link Posted: 7/25/2013 11:55:02 AM EST
Since 1974. 150k to 470k now. The entire metro area here is probably 1.5 million.

I notice it's starting to become a city that never sleeps. Cars driving all over at 3 am. That used to be a nice time to drive because the roads would be empty.
Link Posted: 7/25/2013 11:55:21 AM EST
When I was born it was about 8,000 and now it's about 19,000.

I grew up in New Bethlehem Pa, I think there are less people there now than when I was there.

Other places I've lived have grown up quite a bit. Beaufort SC is like a little hilton head now.

No clue what the population was in 1987.

Didn't grow up there though.

Populations increased when agriculture was practiced, but supposably great starvations happened when there was a disaster, like one bad winter or something.

The fallout will be epic in this day and age, when more people are dependent on a few.

The Las Vegas valley population has quadrupled in the last 30 years. Went from 500k to over 2M in the last census.
Link Posted: 7/25/2013 12:08:54 PM EST

250K when I was born. We just passed the 2M mark.

Vegas was GREAT when I was growing up, now its an over populated shit hole...

Once, I literally had to ask for a teller at the bank that spoke English. WTF?

The population of my home town has declined since I was born. Poor management, though not epically poor a la Detroit either. The place has recovered some in recent years, but there's still a lot of economic stagnation. It's likely I'll end up moving to greener pastures at some point because there's not enough opportunity here long term. All the while, the people running this place will continue to piss and moan about all the young people leaving while they continue to let it all stagnate.

Not going to bother looking it up right now, but I know Phoenix has doubled in growth over the past 30 years... Not sure if that even encompasses the whole metro area. If not, it's much much higher.


My maths suck

Escondido CA went from 30k in 1960 to 146k today.
I remember hyway 395 going through town @ four lanes with lights but north and south 2 lanes.
Today and it is 16 lanes and it ain't enough. Quality of life sucks there...it's just too crowded but back in the 70's it was nice, peaceful, a kid could drive his dirt bike to the ocean or desert. Now just a mega city!!

Around 2050 world population is projected to level off. After that, it will start to decline. And THAT will cause a different set of problems.

How are you all searching this data?

Google inquiry is only yielding me current census data. Won't let me go back to the 80's.
